COMPOSITE invited to CENTRIC at Sheffield Hallam University (United Kingdom)

2013-04-29 12:01

On March 26th the Centre of Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence & Organised Crime Research (CENTRIC) was launched at Sheffield Hallam University (United Kingdom). The mission of CENTRIC is to provide a platform for researchers, practitioners, policy makers and the public to connect and conduct applied research in the security domain. The event was attended by 103 participants from 35 different organisations including police forces (e.g., South Yorkshire Police, West Yorkshire Police), various counter terrorism units across UK, members of universities (University of Leeds, Greenwich University, University of Sheffield), the UNICI and the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), as well as security-related companies (SAS, QinetiQ, BAE).
COMPOSITE was invited as one of the presenters on the day – providing an example for a successful large-scale cooperation between researchers and police forces on an international level. Dr Petra Saskia Bayerl presented the project and a selection of results from work packages 1 (change case studies), 3 (knowledge sharing), 4 (technology adaptation), 6 (identity and identification) and 7 (leadership) as well as the photo project.
The COMPOSITE project was very positively received. Especially the aspects of change leadership and the photos of police work in our different countries piqued the interest of the audience.
